Finmere Memorial and Control Tower Preservation.

20th November 2020

Email sent to Andy at Lone Star Land.
(As to this date 9th January 2021 no reply)

Hi Andy, As you will see from our last correspondence, it is over a year since I last wrote to you regarding our interest in saving the tower at Finmere airfield. We have watched with interest the development and concept plans, including the most recent regarding the proposed garage and coffee shop.

Like those preceding it the latest appears not to include the tower area, only to see its general location lost among boundary trees and such like.

This being the case I wonder if you would be kind enough to inform me of any of the appropriate.

(1)    Has any consideration regarding the preservation of this historic tower now been taking into account? And if so can you please inform us of these considerations?

(2)    As the tower appears to have been located on the fringe and boundary of development plans, would it be possible to purchase independently the tower and a surrounding area of land? To enable us to secure its preservation?

(3)    If so should we again approach the land owner? this time with a letter of intent, as current developments give us great concern to the wellbeing of this historic building?
Thank-you in advance, I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

David King, Chairman Aircrew Remembrance Society
